Getting the brick to follow the contour of the windows was a challenge, but with a couple simple jigs, we managed to achieve a consistent and accurate radius! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
Days upon days, and nights upon nights of brickwork was put in to this fitup. A huge amount of hours were poured in to this brick, but the final product was what we all kept in mind, and with every course of bricks, we could see it coming together! This is one job we’re incredibly proud of! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
And so the brick veneer “tile” setting begins! We used a regular thinset tile mortar to set the veneers, and used 1/2” rips of wood as our spacers to get a consistent gap. The @dewalt_ca laser levels helped keep our tiles vertically aligned all the way up the walls! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #brickveneer #brickwork #bricky #industrial
We needed brick veneer, but to fit our timeline and budget we had to cut our own.... lots and lots of bricks, transformed in to even more veneers! The boys were relentless with the wet saw, and managed to get 4 half inch cuts per brick! We were then able to set these like tile, which saved in space, weight and money! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #industrial #oldbuilding #inspiration
The dividing wall’s up, and windows are in! Next step will be to get some facia metal up, some faux rafter tails, and do a scratch coat of mortar ready for brick veneers! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #industrial #oldbuilding #inspiration
First task in creating the industrial facade was to make some wooden windows! These will get painted black, and will be glazed to create a stylish divide between the workspace and bar area! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #woodwindows #brick #industrial #oldbuilding #inspiration
Now that the monkedia offices were starting to take shape and all the rough ins were done, and the drywall was well on its way, we turned our focus to the finish selections in their space. We took the old Windsor textile factory as our industrial inspiration, and aimed to create the beautiful details and simple interactions between the wooden and brick structures! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #windsor #windsortextilefactory #brick #industrial #oldbuilding #inspiration
After a couple evenings of spraying, our hard working painter had the whole ceiling and ductwork sprayed a beautifully deep charcoal grey! We’re so pleased with how this turned out! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #ceiling #ac #ducting #painting #spraying #graco #charcoal #charcoalgrey #caviar
After clearing out all the old unused services from the ceiling, we ran our new electrical and services through conduit to keep everything neat and tidy! We decided to keep the ceiling exposed to accentuate the industrial look we were hoping to achieve! We then plan to spray the whole ceiling and ductwork the same colour #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #ceiling #ac #ducting
6000sq/ft of office space meant a massive amount of drywall to hang, and a lot of mudding to do! . . At the back end of the office space we created a mezzanine floor to house all of the services. Keeping the hot water tank, communications box, air conditioning unit etc, up and out of the way has meant we’re able to keep the office spaces undisrupted, and maximize the useable space.  #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #drywall #mezzanine
Once the demolition of the old dividing walls was done, it was time to start dividing up and defining the new office spaces! A combination of wood framing and steel stud gave us the best structural diversity, while still giving us the flexibility to rough in all the electrical and plumbing services!  #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia #framing #steelstud
The last 2 months have probably been the busiest we’ve ever experienced. The final space at paddlers cove finally got the green light to be developed in to a beautiful set of offices. This has been our workshop space for almost a year, so it was a bittersweet, but exciting moment when we had to tear down the wall and start planning. Stay tuned for all the development pictures from this, to the finished product! #paddlerscove #dartmouth #lakebanook #kore #koreconstruction #workshop #offices #office #development #monkedia
Photos don’t do this liquor nook justice! Wine bar all stocked, single malts lined up, and all kinds of mixers ready to go! Solid walnut floating shelf for local Nova Scotian crystal too!

Today we saw the final element of our vision materialize for the exterior of paddlers cove. Additions, Windows, mouldings, siding, cedar shingles, and now these absolutely gorgeous pavers! All these elements work so well individually, and tie the whole building together so beautifully. We are so excited to see the aesthetics of this building become exactly what we’d imagined!

Barn doors in the master bedroom! These beasts of doors are an incredible feature on this huge 26’ long bedroom wall! Rustic black hardware and solid red oak slabs, stained to match the floor. #kore #koreconstruction #bespoke #customwoodworking #barndoor #rustic  #masterbedroom #redoak #minwax #englishchestnut #ogilviestreet
Today is countertop day! Huge 10’ island, and full 20’ run along the wall. Lots of of beautiful quarts from @novatilemarbleltd #kore #koreconstruction #bespoke #customwoodworking #customkitchen #kitchen #kitchenfitting #countertops #quartz #ogilviestreet
Custom wine bar in the kitchen. Solid walnut lattice, and liquor cabinet. Milking up the solid walnut top tomorrow! Love this little accent piece as part of the kitchen! #kore #koreconstruction #bespoke #custom #customwoodworking #benjaminmoore #benjaminmooreadvance #customkitchen #wine #winebar #winerack #walnut #ogilviestreet
Really loving seeing each component come together this week! Many months of planning and hard work, and now the finishing touches are beginning! This retro rustic vanity pays attention to every detail, from the grain in the pine, the stylish faucet, to the patterned tile. Check back in our feed to see how we achieved the scorched pine finish! #kore #koreconstruction #bespoke #customwoodworking #tile #patternedtiles #scorchedpine #vanity #vesselsink #retro #retrovanity #powderroom #ogilviestreet
